Winter Leads Warriors Past Tigers

ROCHESTER — Paige Winter wasn’t 100 percent but that didn’t stop her from putting up a double-double to help Rochester earn a 46-37 win over Centralia in an Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball game here on Wednesday.

Winter scored 21 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. Sofie Sand added nine rebounds and eight points for the Warriors.

Carissa Kaut led the Tigers with 12 points and Hannah Porter and Makayla Erickson each added six points.

The Warriors held a slim 6-5 lead after one quarter but was able to expand the lead in the second quarter for a 21-16 lead at halftime.

Rochester maintained their lead throughout the second half and outscored the Tigers 25-21, with some Warriors coming off the bench and hitting some big threes to maintain the victory.

The Warriors had 42 rebounds against the Tigers.

“Defense definitely won that game for us tonight. We didn’t have Lexi (Jones-Sederberg) tonight so we were bringing the ball up by committee,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “Centralia did a nice job of pressing us. Defense and rebounding was the difference maker to make up for our not taking care of the basketball.”

Rochester (8-6, 1-3) travels to Aberdeen on Friday while Centralia (3-11, 1-3) hosts W.F. West on Friday in a hardwood Swamp Cup game.
